Overview

Misadventures of a City Girl (Misadventures Series #2) by Meredith Wild, Chelle Bliss

***MISADVENTURES ARE STANDALONE ROMANCES THAT CAN BE READ IN ANY ORDER***

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.


Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.


When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

How can a retreat in the mountains lead to a love of a lifetime? Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss created a heartfelt beautiful love story that is HOT
JWright57 More than 1 year ago
I'm a fan of Chelle Bliss but this is my first Meridith Wild book and I have to say it won't be my last, I read this book in one sitting, it had me hooked from the first chapter. Misadventures of a City Girl is the first in a series of standalones by various authors and I'm really excited to read the rest of them. This book is told in alternating POV of a city girl and a very hot mountain man and oh boy is this book hot !!! Madison has recently got divorced from a Hollywood hotshot and has taken herself off to a retreat to escape the paparazzi, Avalon Springs is just what she needs. Luke lives off the grid and the last thing he expects to see is the beautiful naked woman soaking up the springs. If you are looking for a fun, flirty read with some laughs along the way then you will want to read Misadventures of a City Girl, sizzling chemistry is just the top of the iceberg for this lovable couple. It's a perfect holiday read with plenty of banter between Madison and Luke and I fell in love with the mountain man, I can really see the man that was the muse for this great read.

I give this read 3.75 stars........ I'm sure many will shake their heads at me. I loved the concept of the story and the chemistry between Luke and Mad was off the charts and sexy as h*ll. It was a fast paced read and I couldn't put it down because the authors had my attention and kept it throughout the story. They made me want to go spend time in the mountains. LOL!! But for me I needed more. More of an emotional connection, a get to know you connection. But other then that I enjoyed this book.

Madison Atwood is a recently divorced Hollywood makeup artist. She seeks refuge from Hollywood at Avalon Springs Retreat. Luke Dawson a former Navy Seal suffering PTSD is now a mountain man recluse. They seek solace in each other in the form of sex. A 300 page HOT read that needs a storyline and character development. Lots of unanswered questions.... Who is Susan? - ex mother in law thrown in the story with no background States Luke has PTSD but no elaboration What happened with Luke's ex wife? It's mentioned he has one.

Our heroine, Madison, needs to get away from the pain and humiliation of a scandalous divorce from her ex-husband. She finds a secluded retreat-style resort where she can unplug and gather her thoughts for a month.Our Hero, Luke, has retreated from society and lives off the land in the mountain above the resort since returning from active duty. Luke happens upon Madison when she unknowingly trespasses onto his property. Thinking she's in the secluded woods, she starts pleasuring herself and startles when she realizes Luke is watching her. Luke is likewise distracted with thoughts of Madison while he's chopping wood and takes a break to relieve the pressure in his groin. As luck would have it, that's when Madison walks into his cabin. Score is now even! This book is told from alternating POV so we are privy to the silent struggles each wrestle with because their life styles are so vastly different and yet they enjoy each other's company...and Madison's time on the mountain has an expiration date of sorts. Madison can't stay on the mountain, essentially doing nothing, for the rest of her life, and the big city scares Luke since he retreated to the mountains originally to get away from noises and sounds that could trigger his PTSD. I loved how their relationship developed, but felt the ending wrapped up too suddenly and neatly which is why I rated it 4 stars.

The story bounces back and forth between Madison and Luke. You see the world through their eyes in turn. It's a solid enough story, not one that'll blow your mind in terms of uniqueness. But that's not what it's meant to do. It's erotica. It's meant for other things. Though I understand that thought process, I do appreciate a story. This one didn't have one. Still though, the story, in erotica has to at least be the bonus cherry on top, and this one was satisfactory enough to be that. Nicely written sex scenes. The characters were explored enough to not feel one dimensional. I received a free copy from Netgalley in return for an honest review.

3.5 out of 5 stars This was a fun, sweet entertaining read... and hot!!! Luke and Madison were likable characters and I loved how they first met. Seriously wow with the instant lust, this story started off with a bang! There's decent character development for them, enough to keep the story moving along, not weighed down. There's a bit of tension mixed in with a lot of unspoken want and need. I enjoyed them getting to know each other and how they found a middle ground to be together since they came from two totally different walks of life. They had great chemistry and the instant lust made it super hot. I pretty much accepted the instant aspect because it was just really entertaining. This was an easy read with a bit of emotion and mild drama mixed in with hotness. The writing was good and I liked the details that were given. I really liked the dual POV and how it was laid out. I loved the first half and was totally into it but somewhere in the second half it lost a bit of steam for me and felt much slower. It was still good and I liked it, I just didn't feel as captured as I did in the first half. All in all I enjoyed it. Instant lust turned love with sexy times and a hot mountain man. Cute storyline with likable characters. A light, entertaining read that made for an fun afternoon! If your looking for a book that has a nice amount of heat and isn’t to taxing, this is your read!

Loved this book. It was a fun and steamy read. I have already read some Meredith Wild so knew I loved her as an author. Highly recommend.

Highly engaging, emotionally thrilling, sweetly sexy unexpected romantic adventure filled with passion and caring. Madison Atwood is a sweet, caring and emotional woman looking for a quite escape from the lime light after her very embarrassing and public divorcee. The last thing she expected to find on her off the grid getaway was a second chance at love. Luke Dawson is a gruff and grumpy alpha male that lives off the grid and prefers his solitude. When he finds Madison soaking in his hot spring he finds her extremely hard to resist. Perfect late night reading experience.

I made it about half way on this book before stopping and that was with a bit of a push hoping I would start to enjoy it. The writing was pretty good and the plot idea was interesting but this just didn’t do it for me. My biggest issue is that it’s basically sex after sex after sex. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good sex scene but I was hoping for more plot and actual story to go in between all the bed bouncing. I’m also still very conflicted over the first sex scene which was pretty much every bad stereotype of a porn movie where two complete strangers just start doing it. I was intrigued by Luke and his struggle with PTSD but Madison was a ball on contradictions. She readily admits she’s a mess after her divorce but man she wasn’t kidding. She’s all over the place when it comes to her initial interactions with Luke and then she spends the whole time after acting like a sex starved woman (Luke isn’t much better in this respect). Plus the whole bar scene comes out of left field with her anger and abrasiveness. If all you’re looking for is a sexcapade then go for it, but it didn’t work for me.

Recently divorced city girl meets a hunky mountain man! This is a Multi Author Series and the order is different depending on which site you refer to, if any is given at all. So read however you would like! HEA with no cliffhangers! This is a SPICY story with lots of dirty talk and HOT action, so if you don’t like that kind of stuff, please pass. If you DO like it, then please enjoy! ♥ Story ♥ Two wounded souls come together in the most delicious way! Looking for an escape from the paparazzi and tabloids after a very public divorce, Madison retreats to Avalon Springs. She is hoping to 'find herself' on the mountainside haven. What she finds is a hunky mountain man who helps her ‘find’ her sexy parts in the best way! Wanting to avoid cities and large crowds has led Luke to live in his secluded cabin in the woods. When he finds Madison naked in his hot springs, he can’t help wanting her. A snow storm traps them inside together and their lust can no longer be denied. This was fan yourself good! I think it went on a little too long and maybe could of done without the teary moment in the back half, but overall it worked. It gets a girl excited to listen to more. If you are like me and like some hot sexy fun times to go with good character driven stories, then this is a listen for you! ♥ Author ♥ This is my first read-listen by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss. Since this is a joint effort, I will have to rate them both the same, which is sexy hot! I loved the characters plus all the dirty talk and action! I will be looking into more from these ladies for sure. ♥ Narrator(s) ♥ Jennifer Mack and Lance Greenfield alternate on this title by chapter point of view. They both did an excellent job with both story and character. I did prefer Lance’s voice when it came to Luke. Jennifer did a good job, which would of been great if she was solo on this. Unfortunately for her, Lance’s sexy gruff was just so much sexier. In an ideal world, when there are more than one narrator, the ‘voice’ of any character would be done by the same person regardless of point of view. Ebook obtained through My Local Library.

The characters were good wish there was more of a story to it though

OMG! I can only apologise for not having read either of these authors in the past! Together they have written an exceptional story. Fast-paced, sexually charged with truly believable characters, plus a really great plot, what more can a reader ask for? I can’t recommend this book highly enough and advise that you keep a cool drink on hand, as Luke will have you melting, simply by being his drool-worthy self!

This book was really good but at times felt like there was too much sex and not enough story. Don't get me wrong I like the stesamy scenes as much as the next but could've had a little more too it I guess and felt it could have been a little longer but overall awesome!!!

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books! I really love these types of stories; the famous person and the off the grids person. It’s always a fun style of read and allows a quick escape from life. As expected with a story of this type, there is definitely not a lack of heat in the bedroom. When you’re locked in a cabin away from life due to mother nature, what else is there to do? Discover one another. I’d definitely say the heat rating is high on this one. Keep that in mind depending upon your preference of reading sexy, hot bedroom scenes. The romance side of things was just as swoony. Both characters needed something from the other person more than they thought. They both craved attention and love from another person. They needed to feel needed. They needed to be someone else’s world. They are both the types of characters that will give everything they have but past relationships have left them feeling one sided. This was an enjoyable, fast read. As this type of story is written over and over by my authors, I can’t say it was really unique in its own right, the story line was still good. It allowed me to escape the real world and I was able to read the story in a few short hours. I’d definitely recommend the story. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
